Debut solo album by Clare concertina player, Jack Talty.

"a concertina renaissance man...with an ear for the sublime...who has continually sought out the rarely illuminated corners where the concertina thrives"

​Siobhan Long, The Irish Times

​"one of the leading traditional Irish musicians of his generation, among a versatile new wave"

​Toner Quinn, The Journal of Music

​"informed, virtuosic, and thoughtful, but what really sets him apart as a musician is his endless curiosity, and a gift for finding the inner life in the music. This he brings to us, as listeners, and opens up a whole new way of hearing old tunes as if for the first time. He is possessed of a rare combination of technical mastery, intelligent artistry, and soul"

Ellen Cranitch, RTÉ Lyric FM

“The master of the concertina”

Carl Corcoran, The Blue of the Night, RTÉ Lyric FM

"Full of gorgeous melodies and ear-catching atmospherics"

Jim Carroll, The Irish Times.

​“In Flow is just majestic. The man is a genius”

Mike Harding

"dynamic, decorative and elegantly expressive. He punctuates each note with a confidence that comes only from musicians steeped in the enactment of their musical heritage"


"Talty's playing appears to effortlessly slide through its sets, and his control is amazing – at times, he manages to make some notes ring out stronger, almost like a trombone punctuating a tune. But apart from the technical surety on the reels and jigs, I found the slow airs to be captivating....not to be missed by listeners who enjoy Irish music as a living, breathing art-form that both challenges and delights. In Flow shines like gold.

Lee Blackstone, RootsWorld

"a master of the slower tunes too: his interpretation of the air, Bóthar Cluain Meala, is deeply moving, and his own composition, Stephen's Waltz, is another highlight. This is not a brash young buck's recording: it is thoughtful and unhurried, but no less impressive for that".

Alex Monaghan, The Living Tradition on In Flow

"The album title fits well, Jack Talty's execution is gently flowing like an undisturbed watercourse. He glides along with both technical prowess and soulful spirit"


"one of the prime movers and shakers in the Irish music scene"

Paul Keating, The Irish Voice

"Rightly considered one of the major Anglo players in the music"

Roger Digby, The Concertina Journal
